This might be fun if they can line up some good programming:

NBCU Launches Horror Channel

“At a time when it’s near-impossible to launch a new linear cable network, NBC Universal thinks it has a plan: repurposing old content and programming it across digital platforms. The company is planning Chiller, a horror-themed network that will exist as a standard and HD cable channel, a VOD package and a broadband Website.

Chiller, which is slated to launch March 1 and already has carriage on DirecTV, will use for its programming old horror TV shows and movies from the Universal library and others. Titles include the TV shows Twin
Peaks and Tales From the Crypt and movies The Shining, Psycho and The Birds.”

Of course everything old is new again, here are the opening titles from “Chiller Theater” which use to run in NYC during the 60s:

…of course the title designs I remember for the show which were done using claymation animation in the 70s can be found it at the bottom of this webpage:
